Psalm 32:9

English Standard Version

9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you. (Job 35:11; Pr 26:3; Jas 3:3)

New International Version

9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.

New Int. Readers Version

9 Don't be like the horse or the mule. They can't understand anything. They have to be controlled by bits and bridles. If they aren't, they won't come to you.

King James Version

9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
